Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Police are looking for two men who robbed another man at gunpoint inside a house in Dayton Friday morning.

Authorities say the victim called 911 just after 8 a.m. Friday to report the robbery.

Two men broke the glass from a back door and then reached in to gain access to the house. 

“I was reading my Bible and I heard this loud crash. I thought someone threw a brick or something through my front window,” said the victim in an interview with 2 NEWS Reporter Ethan Fitzgerald. 

The victim said two men broke into his house on N. Delmar Avenue and held him at gunpoint.

“I spent most of that time, believe it or not, preaching to them. Told them that God loved them and he wasn’t that mad at them for this and they just needed to get their life styles changed,” said the victim.

The two men stole $150 and several other items from his house, then ran away.

“They took my phone so I couldn’t call out, cut my lines in my basement,” said the victim. 

A neighbor saw the suspects running north on N. Delmar Avenue. The suspects reportedly got into a white pickup truck on Rangeley Avenue and drove away.

The suspects were last seen driving on Springfield Street.

Authorities say the suspects were both white men, wearing black clothing and black masks.

No injuries were reported.

Authorities say no arrests have been made.
